Spreadsheets
Master Spreadsheet

Callisto Spreadsheet

Hagen Spreadsheet

- Once all columns of a goal have been filled out a new goal will appear within 5 minutes.

- Do not change existing pages. You may add a new page to your spreadsheet if you want to track additional information.

- Mark books as used in your books list once they are used for a goal.

- Only books read during the current round may be applied towards goals, once the round has ended those books may no longer be used for a goal.

- Once you merge teams, you may use your books for your partner teams goals. List them in your books list and on their goals sheet. Mark them as used.

- If you end up with more than 3 open goals, contact a moderator for help.

Snowtulip | 4439 comments Hi Everyone!!!


message 8: by Amy (new)

Amy (amymia) | 461 comments Hi everyone!

I'm starting off round 2 with Stardust for the February goal :D


message 9: by Snowtulip (new)

Snowtulip | 4439 comments So, one of the things I liked that our old team did was to just read and aim for a goal, but if someone finished a book first for that same goal...no problem.

Is that something we still might be able to do in our combined team?


message 10: by SandyL (new)

SandyL | 4397 comments Just checked Hagen's goals:

Read a book with time travel
Read a book where a character is a nurse
Read a book where a character visits a city

This sounds great to me.

Right now I'm reading a book towards the nurse goal, but if someone beats me there awesome! :D


message 12: by Snowtulip (new)

Snowtulip | 4439 comments I'm going to aim for time travel, Hemlock


message 13: by SandyL (new)

SandyL | 4397 comments Great start everyone! I'm reading a book that I need to finish for another challenge - it doesn't meet any of our goals unfortunately. But, maybe that will change by the time I finish it.


message 14: by Skandia (new)

Skandia (sfgirl) | 1724 comments Hi everyone!

I had a surprise mini vacation and no internet, but I'm back well rested now :) Unfortunately, I've fallen so behind with my reading now, that summer is finally here, so I have a lot of catching up to do.


message 15: by SandyL (new)

SandyL | 4397 comments Mini vacations are always a good thing Skandia!


message 16: by Snowtulip (new)

Snowtulip | 4439 comments So glad you had a mini vacation Skandia, and sometimes it's even better to not have internet :D

Skandia (sfgirl) | 1724 comments Thanks Sandy and ST! It was a much needed break!

I'll try to mark down our first mixed goal and see what happens!

EDIT: I can't edit Hagen's spreadsheet, so we just have to wait for their captain to fill it in.


message 19: by Ashley (last edited Aug 16, 2015 12:56AM) (new)

Ashley | 1439 comments @ Snowtulip - that's the way we worked too so simple!

New Goal: Read a book that starts with the letter V (Hagen)


message 20: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (rebeccasg) | 3321 comments So now that we're a whole big team can we work on both former teams' goals?


message 21: by SandyL (new)

SandyL | 4397 comments Yes, both teams works on all six goals.

Here is a list of all current goals:
Read a book that starts with the letter N
Read a book with a zombie
Read a book first published in February
Read a book where a character is a nurse
Read a book where a character visits a city
Read a book that starts with the letter V

Happy Reading!!


message 22: by Cathy (new)

Cathy Galloway | 784 comments Hi team. Just checking in. I have limited internet at the moment but will be home tonight.


message 23: by SandyL (new)

SandyL | 4397 comments Hey Team Hagen - what we (Callisto) were doing that seem to work pretty well is that we'll let the rest of the team know if we were reading towards a certain goal. It doesn't stop you from reading a book with the same goal - we could all be reading books staring with N right now and that's okay. But it lets everyone else know if there are goals that need to be claimed. Is that how you all were doing it too? Is there anything that worked particularly well that you want to continue or something that didn't work?

In the end, we all want to have fun!
